About us

Musoni is a multi-award winning, cloud-based, core-banking system used by organisations all around the world. The software has been consistently proven to help financial organisations improve efficiency, reduce costs, and expand outreach into the rural areas where the majority of the unbanked live.

Aside from the core banking functionality, Musoni has pioneered the use of new technology in microfinance, and as such is integrated with multiple mobile money transfer services, includes an SMS module for the sending of automated payment reminders, a tablet app that loan officers can use for offline data capture, a mobile banking app for clients and credit scoring to improve lending decisions. Musoni therefore helps financial organisations to leverage the latest technology sweeping across Africa, but at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional banking systems.

 
 

Our Story

Our goal is to revolutionise the way financial services are delivered across the globe, and in doing so to improve the lives of the unbanked. Before starting Musoni Services, the team founded the world’s first 100% mobile microfinance institution in the world in Kenya in 2009. As a result, we have firsthand knowledge of what its like to run a microfinance organisation and the challenges faced in finding the perfect core banking system. We see technology as key to the future of microfinance and crucial to our goal of improving livelihoods through financial inclusion, and the lessons we have learnt setting up and running a microfinance institution ourselves have now been distilled into our multi-award winning, cloud-based Musoni System.

Mobile Microfinance

Following the successes of M-PESA, MTN Mobile Money, Airtel Money and the many other mobile money transfer systems being used across Africa, we believe in the huge potential in linking mobile and microfinance. Indeed, the original idea behind M-PESA was to make it easier for microfinance clients to make loan repayments. By processing loans, savings and repayments over mobile money transfer systems, MFIs can improve their efficiency, reduce the errors and wasted time associated with manual cash handling, and lower the likelihood of fraud. The Musoni System has therefore been built to make it as easy as possible for you to integrate with mobile money. We are already integrated with M-PESA (Kenya & Tanzania), Airtel Money, Yo!Payments, Kopo Kopo, Paynet, Payway and Ecocash.

Our Name

Musoni stands for ‘Mobile Usoni’, which means mobile future in Swahili. We like to think that our use of mobile technology represents the future of microfinance, and hope you’ll join us on our journey.
